Unhappy Leo's still not doing well.

Im worried about my little Leo... First he started out with an inflamed gill, next fin rot. I put him on Maracyn, but unfortuantly it says it comes with 8 packets but I only got 1... I might have thrown away the rest on accident. So yeah that treatment didn't work. Soon later Squirt got a little finrot, so I got some Bettafix for Squirt and Leo. The Bettafix did Wonders for Squirt, his Finrot was gone in that 1 week of treatment. But unfortuantly for Leo, everything has not changed. He still has a bit of finrot, and that inflamed gill. He has never made a single bubble nest since i got him! ( 6.8.09 )
He swims around and eats well. But im just worried. I clean his tank 100% once a week. The bettafix only lasted 1 week... because i had to use it on 2 fish soo yeah. I don't know how long Leo's going to last for. I hope he gets better. My mom is kinda sick of going to petco and stuff with me, but if i really need anything i'll tell her.

Can anyone help me?
Thanks.

Have you tried Salt Baths? Neenjar has a whole thread on how to give a salt bath.
